A vibrant pastel landscape framed under glass in a period frame. Signed very indistinctly in the lower right corner, the name appears to be E.S. Kulnic, E. Skolnic or E.S.Rolnic (please see companion piece.) Due to the backing there are small bumps within the sky but not noticeable from a distance. Reframing would be advisable. The picture measures 11-1/2" x 24", the frame 15-1/2"x 27". Not examined out of the frame.
